Hello! I'm Kelsi, I'm a simple Midwestern woman with a passion for all art media. I have experience with panting in acrylics, watercolor, and oils.

I am Sara. I am a certified Preschool-8th grade art teacher by day and a bartending paint slanging Twister by night. I studied Art at SIU Edwardsville and in exploring myself artistically I took a fondness for drawing and metal smithing. When I'm not teaching or 'twisting' I enjoy being a mom, working on my fitness, traveling, attending live music, eating spicy food, and making punny cards.
Artwork has been a huge part of my life, something I've always loved sharing with others. Through knitted blankets and scarves, beaded jewelry and now acrylic paint I have been able to find so much to create!
I create artwork for DnD characters digitally as well- Sierra
